Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and renowned for its teetotalling pirates, anti-smoking policies, and restrictive gun laws. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 25.829 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized, socially-minded, outspoken government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 81.6%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,133 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 237,476 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians are often found scavenging bins at night to supplement their income, factories grind to a halt every time there is an election, anti-government web sites are springing up, and men avoid even so much as looking at female colleagues. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 3rd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 146,121st in the world for Largest Welfare Programs, scoring -335 on the Safety Net Mesh Density Rating.
